Alison Swan, Adjunct Professor, Western Michigan University
Title: No Complacency: Words, Imagination, and Calls to Action
Description: Award-winning writer and wildlands advocate, Alison Swan, has been immersed in the literary arts for as long as she can remember. Poetry, creative nonfiction, and fiction have been central to her connection and commitment to the wild places that have shaped her. She’ll talk about this, and read from some of the poems and prose she’s written as she works to preserve space for wild nature in an increasingly built-up Michigan.
The lecture series is co-sponsored by the WMU University Center for the Humanities and the Department of English. The reading is free and open to the public.
